Hair Transplant


Hair transplantation is now the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery. Recent advances had made it simpler, with minimal side effects and results are far more consistent. It is based on the principle of donor dominance., that is hair from the back portion of scalp(occipital area) are stable compared to the frontal area , so hair follicles are harvested from the back portion and transplanted to the frontal portion. There are two techniques which can be used for harvesting the grafts , which technique is best for each patient depends on the extent of hair loss.

FUT Technique

In fut a linear strip of width 1 cm is taken from the back , which is the safe doner area and is dissected under microscope of magnification 10-20 times , each graft is divided in to single , double, triple depending on the follicle grouping by expert technician and doctors . FUT is considered as the GOLD STANDARD in hair restoration because of higher graft yield per session. Up to 4000 grafts can be obtained in a single session , which provides a high density coverage in advanced grade baldness. Graft survival rate is higher than FUE because of higher magnification under video assisted Microscope. Graft survival rate of almost 99% compared to FUE. Scar is almost invisible due to trichophytic closure where hair grows from the suture line, and also when the hair grows back. There is no need to trim the entire donor area as in fue for fut.

FUE Techniques

Small punches are used to harvest individual grafts from the donor area. Compared to fut recovery periods for fue is less. Also maximum grafts harvested in single session is less compared to fut , maximum of 1500 follicles in a single session. Donor area need to be fully trimmed . Ideal for smaller cases and young individual who trims hair very short. Graft damage rate is higher compared to FUT . Multiple sessions required for advanced baldness. Growth rate is slightly lower compared to FUT.

Combination Techniques

Combination technique includes FUT + FUE+ PRP . This technique is used when the baldness is grade 4 or higher where maximum coverage is required, which is difficult to obtain from a single technique. In addition to scalp hair , beard hair and body hair can also be used for transplantation in case of advanced baldness.


  • Male pattern hair loss and female pattern hair loss (Androgenetic alopecia ) which does not respond to medical therapies.
  • Advanced cases with less number of viable hair follicles.
  • Certain cases of scarring alopecia like traumatic scar , burn scar.

At Aayat Clinic we perform both FUT and FUE depending on the patient requirements. All procedures are being done in well equipped theatre setup to provide better patient comfort and safety , and performed by well trained doctors and technicians using latest technology.

Hair transplantation surgery should be combained with proper medical treatment for hairloss for best results. If the patient has active hair loss , he / she will be evaluated and any specific reason for hair loss will be addressed and then only suitable candidates will be selected. Proper follow up is also required after surgery.

Immediately after hair transplant surgery

How you feel afterwards depends on the extent of surgery. After the operation, you can expect:

  • bruising and swelling
  • possible numbness
  • pain, throbbing and discomfort
  • a tight feeling in the scalp
  • to wear dressings or bandages (a pressure bandage may be worn for one or two days)
  • formation of small scabs across the treated areas of scalp.

Self-care after hair transplant surgery:

Be guided by your surgeon. General self-care suggestions include:

  • Follow all instructions on looking after your wounds.
  • Avoid exercise or any strenuous activity that could increase blood pressure, as this can make your wounds bleed. Your surgeon may advise you to avoid sex for about 10 days. 
  • Report any bleeding, severe pain or unusual symptoms to your surgeon.

Long-term outlook after hair transplant surgery:

Most hair transplants are successful, although it can take up to nine months before the hair takes root and begins to fill in. It is not uncommon for the transplanted hair to fall out after several months and then regrow.

Once the hair starts to regrow, it should look natural because the hair is transplanted in the direction in which the hair would normally grow in that location. Most scars should be covered with hair and will be hard to see. Any visible scarring will be permanent, but should fade with time. Be patient – improvements to scars may take a year or so.

You will almost certainly need 'touch up' surgery to improve the look of your hair transplant.
